Pictures from our trip!

This was a rest stop we stopped at on our way up North. It was a beautiful area and they had a hydro dam right there.

Two little dogs sitting on the beach…

fishing.jpg

 

Here is Brent fishing on a little pier we made. This is also the spot where he broke his fishing rod. 😯 So this pier was never used again after that happened….

makingfire.jpg

 

Brent trying to “make fire out of nothing”. Answer to the question you’re probably thinking: No, it didn’t work. But that was probably because it started to pour with rain only minutes after this photo was taken.

rocks.jpg

 

I found this cool little rock statue someone had made and left on the beach. There were several of them around.

candyland.jpg

 

Candyland!!! This store was on the way to Barkerville – so of course because of my love for anything made of sugar – we had to stop! 😆

thetown.jpg

 

The Historic town of
Barkerville.

skit.jpg

Here is a skit that took place in the middle of the town while we were walking through. All the people who work at Barkerville are actors, so they are always in character. It really felt like we had stepped back in time 😀

Here I am trying to touch one of the horses in the Barkerville stable.

moose.jpg

 

We wanted so badly to see a real wild moose while we were up north but sadly, this was the only one we saw – and he was mounted on the wall inside the Barkerville Hotel. So you know, somehow it just wasn’t the same….. 😕

The Ghost Town of Quesnel Forks.

car-before.jpg

The car at the start of our trip. See Angus peeking out the window at us? He was wondering why we had gotten out of the car and left them in it. We had just stopped quick to get out to take some pictures of the mountains.

car-after.jpg

Wow, look at this filty car!!! This was the day after our long ride back along the logging road – and after the flat tire – take note of our lovely little temporary wheel on the back there – stylish isn’t it?
